A wide range of local businesses work with Blue Ventures to offset carbon emissions
Three diverse businesses – a gastropub, a moving company and an adventure travel company – have joined Blue Ventures Carbon Offsetting (BVCO) program to reduce carbon emissions and help fight climate change.
Easyshift.co.uk is a removals company based in London with a fleet of three vehicles that work all over the country. The company currently produces an average 4.16 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. Now with the help of the BVCO, this amount will be totally offset for 2006/7. In addition, BVCO is working with Easy Shift to develop an ongoing management programme that will reduce future carbon emissions and fuel costs by 20 percent.
Also joining BVCO is the Victoria Stakes gastro-pub and restaurant in north London, located near Alexandra Palace. The pub holds 250 people and the restaurant 68 people. BVCO has worked with Victoria Stakes to calculate their carbon footprint and is currently devising a management plan that will reduce their overall emissions. You can learn more about the Victoria Stakes by visiting www.victoriastakes.co.uk.
And BVCO is working with the Adventure Company to offset the carbon emissions for their travellers. The Adventure Company organises holidays to some of the most exciting places around the world. Adventure Company clients travelling to Madagascar will now be to offset the emissions from their trips. To find out more go to www.adventurecompany.co.uk.
Other companies that are offsetting their carbon with BVCO are Remodel consultants, Enbada, Local Nights Out and ITEX.
BVCO works with clients spanning a wide range of industries to reduce carbon emissions around the world and fight climate change.
Companies who work with BVCO fund projects in Madagascar, Brazil and India that not only reduce the emissions of local communities, but also deliver real economic, social and health benefits to some of the world’s poorest and most isolated communities
Current programmes include the distribution of solar and energy-efficient stoves to poor communities. These stoves dramatically reduce wood use and the associated deforestation. They also reduce health risks associated with open fires and smoke that can result in lung disease.
